Does your content
We can help!
Welcome to Good Boy Bentley Creative
It’s common in education, health care and entrepreneurship — ideas and products that kick ass but the “story” seems a little off. For founders and executives like you who are driven by mission, it’s evident how awesome your business, foundation and startup are but not to your target audience.
You need a freelancer who follows the trends, understands the regulations and speaks the language. And you need well-written and tightly edited content that’s completed on time and ready to rock the market.
If that’s you, you’ve come to the right place.
How we can help you

Who We Are
Mike Plunkett, the founder and principal of G.B.B. Creative, loves great stories. He’s spent more than 15 years in journalism and communications, in newsrooms and nonprofits, sharing stories with the world.
A former journalist and designer, he formerly worked at The Washington Post, where his writing on health, wellness, tech and business was syndicated in more than 100 outlets worldwide, including the Chicago Tribune, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the Sydney Morning Herald. As a communications professional, he partnered with mission-driven organizations to re-imagine print and digital publications and recast their messaging and branding strategies.
Mike, his wife Megan and their corgi Bentley, reside in Kansas City, Missouri.
“When we were recently preparing to launch a new product, Mike was the first person I called for marketing help. He’s a respected creative and can always be relied upon to bring expertise and professionalism to every project. Although Mike is best known for his writing talent, G.B.B. Creative is not one dimensional. Beyond content creation, writing and editing, Mike’s voice at the table was critical to building a successful brand strategy, too.”
“Known to most as a journalist, Mike Plunkett is also secretly a branding whiz, communications guru, and top-notch project wrangler. I’ve worked with Mike on two year-long pro bono annual report projects for non-profit clients through the Taproot Foundation. He is an uber-reliable pro who made both projects a success — in fact, I sought Mike out for the second project because I so valued working with him on the first one.”

“I was confused about how to put together a content marketing plan for my communications firm because there are just so many platforms and not enough hours in the day. Mike analyzed my metrics and asked me thoughtful questions about my company goals. He mapped out a strategy I could immediately put into action for my business. I went from stuck to having a step-by-step strategy for results. His insights and expertise were invaluable.”
